This month, Heidi R. Lewis was featured on KRCC's "Off Topic" radio program with Professor Kathy Giuffre and Professor Idris Goodwin on the "Race, Racism, & White Privilege episode. From the "Off Topic" website: "Despite the long history of racism, white supremacy, and racial violence in this country–and despite the progress that has been made in combating the worst and most glaring examples of it–Americans still have a very difficult time speaking candidly about the contemporary realities of race in our society. However, In the wake of events such as the recent not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin case, it becomes urgently clear that we need to have real, substantive conversations about the undeniable effects of inequality in the United States."
The episode also features Dr. Charles W. Mills (Northwestern University), Rosemary Harris Lytle (President, NAACP Colorado-Wyoming-Montana State Conference), Dr. Claire Garcia, and Roger Bonair-Agard (poet and performance artist).
"Off Topic" is produced by Craig Richardson and Jake Brownell.
